Women’s Racing Safety Accessories

Women’s Motorcycle Racing Safety Accessories

Kari Lamanuzzi Staff Writer

Motorcycle safety accessories are an essential part of the pastime.  As more women have become involved in motocross, Superbike, and MotoGP, the availability of motorcycle safety accessories for women has exploded.  In addition to possibly saving the rider’s life in a crash, safety accessories can also say something about who you are as a rider and what you’re all about on the track.

Icon has come out with an outstanding follow up to the extremely successful Bombshell, the Hella.  The Hellas offer the fashionable, sexy feel of a high-end dress boot, with all the functionality of a top of the line motorcycle boot.  Hellas feature full zip step-in styling, insole protections and a padded ankle, and a wedge heel to help distribute weight evenly.  Many riders find the wedge heel to be more comfortable than a traditional heel, both on and off the bike.  The Hellas are made with premium grade cowhide leather and feature a ribbed calf expansion panel as well as easy on and off zipper system.

British Motorcycle Gear

Challenger Jacket

I set out to do a product evaluation on Belstaff’s Trekker jacket and wound up with something much more. Back in the day Belstaff gear was the shasizzle – it was the motorcycle stuff you had to have, but that was awhile back, and for whatever the reason the mystique faded over the years, things changed.

This particular jacket for example the Trekker, I discovered, had black porn been replaced by British Motorcycle Gear’s Challenger Jacket. Two things immediately came to mind with this revelation – the first being, “okay then let’s test that jacket,” and the second thought was, “so what’s up with that?” Here’s the official short version regarding the Belstaff to BMG transformation –

“The Belstaff brand was sold to an Italian Fashion House in ‘05.  We (BMG) were the USA Importer for Belstaff.  We are now manufacturing under our label.”

BMW Pro-Touring Motorcycle Boots

BMW Pro-Touring Motorcycle Boots

Doing this evaluation on BMW’s professional touring boots turned into something akin to one of those over-the-top European road test commercials, where you get slammed with nearly every conceivable harsh weather road scenario, one after the other.

It began with heavy, wet, morning costal fog and quickly kicked into brutal desert heat, peaking at 111 degrees. That was before breakfast. The day ended in Flagstaff, Arizona, in drenching rain and thunder. And after settling in to a motel, I walked to dinner without giving a thought to changing shoes. They’re billed as boots for year-round utilization – sometimes it only takes a day to fully appreciate all the characteristics of genuine versatility.
